New Relic Releases New Infrastructure Monitoring Experience

New Relic announced the general availability of a new infrastructure monitoring experience to empower DevOps, SRE and ITOps teams to proactively identify and resolve issues in their public, private and hybrid cloud infrastructure.

The modernized experience allows engineers to instantly isolate bottlenecks by filtering and sorting based on golden signal conditions, analyze all related telemetry (including logs, events, alerts, network, etc.) in context, visualize blast radius with topology maps and perform historical analysis to understand cascading impacts. The experience is included as an essential part of the all-in-one New Relic One observability platform that allows engineers to get 3X+ more value than the competition, which requires provisioning separate SKUs with disjointed experiences and agent-based pricing models.

Detecting, investigating, and resolving infrastructure performance incidents has never been more challenging. First, there has been an exponential increase in the complexity of infrastructure to monitor as 40%+ of all enterprise workloads have moved to private, public, hybrid and edge cloud infrastructure. Second, with a majority of enterprises using Kubernetes, a large portion of infrastructure is now ephemeral, resulting in tens of thousands of components that are not feasible to monitor without modern observability. Last, infrastructure isn’t just ITOps’ responsibility, all engineers are required to be self-sufficient in debugging infrastructure-specific issues and still toggle between at least two tools to monitor the health of their systems. New Relic infrastructure monitoring capabilities address these three key issues, delivering a modern all-in-one experience that helps all engineers to troubleshoot complex distributed infrastructure.

“Our mission is to help every engineer do their best work based on data, not opinions ... We have received overwhelmingly positive feedback from our early-access customers, many of whom are replacing their incumbent solutions with New Relic One ...” said New Relic CEO Bill Staples.

New Relic’s infrastructure monitoring experience delivers five key capabilities:

- Isolate bottlenecks – View and action on queries such as “show me the hosts where CPU utilization is greater than 80%” by filtering and sorting tens of thousands of infrastructure components based on golden signal conditions.

- Access all context – Analyze related entities, change telemetry, logs, alerts, events, golden signals, network metrics, and more, all in context and in a unified experience to identify the root cause and initiate issue resolution.

- Visualize blast radius – View upstream and downstream dependencies of bottleneck components using topology maps to quantify the true extent and impact of an incident.

- Time travel analysis – Go back in time to see health status changes and cascading performance impacts on topology maps using the Timewarp module in the topology maps.

- 3X+ more value – Realize higher value on your investments as compared to the competition with agent based pricing based on New Relic One’s simple and predictable US$0.25 per GB and per-user fees.

The infrastructure monitoring experience is now generally available across all regions as part of the New Relic One platform - the all-in-one observability platform with a secure telemetry cloud, powerful full-stack analysis tools and predictable consumption pricing instead of disjointed SKU bundles. All existing customers can access this new capability without any additional cost as part of their New Relic One account.
